Grading The Impact… using DaVinci Resolve

Last week we began the final grade for The Impact. This is where we adjust colours, contrast and even add subtle visual effects like shadows or flares, to polish the look of all the films.

Impact50 Update… The End Is In Sight

So, it’s been a long time. We had an actual apocalypse. Who knew. First up, I want to assure you I am 100% committed to getting Impact50 completed. The reasons it has taken way longer than any of us ever expected are many and complex, but can really be boiled down to a few simple

Taking The Impact out of Life’s A Beach by Mark Hampton

Every film made for a Create50 has two potential lives. First and foremost, each film takes its place in the final Create50 film, making its way to a big screen alongside the work of other filmmakers in a celebration of creative collaboration.

‘First Time’ by Grindstone Films

With the end of the world imminent, Danny has only a short time to “do it” ..for the first time. I found the concept of the end of the world very depressing, so wrote something that I thought would add a bit of fun. I was registered to go to Cannes, but in the end

Making Last Push Till We Meet Again by Tasbir Malle

It was going to be the biggest rule breaker! I had loved the idea of the Impact story when it first launched and even wrote a script. But it was only a couple of months ago catching up with friends and their projects that I realized the competition was open again.  I started watching the
